What Can Brow Lift Surgery Do For Me?
Brow lift surgery restores the natural position of eyebrows that have begun to sag as result of aging. It ameliorates aging lines above the eyes and between the brows, thereby enhancing the beauty of the upper face, opening up the eyes and making an individual look more refreshed, awake and younger.
Who Is A Candidate For Brow Lift (Forehead Lift) Surgery?
Brow lift surgery candidates must be in good general health without major medical conditions. The surgery can be done at any age. In order to minimize the potential risks associated with any surgery, Dr. Tansavatdi will carefully screen each patient’s medical history and facial anatomy and recommend the best course of action.
How Is Brow Lift Surgery (Forehead Lift) Performed?
There are several different approaches for brow lift surgery, which depend on several factors, including a patient’s hairline, anatomy, and the goals of surgery. During your initial exam, Dr. Tansavatdi will discuss which brow lift technique is most appropriate for you.
Brow lift (Forehead Lift) Surgery is performed under moderate sedation or general anesthesia.
Brow lift surgery incisions are usually located above the forehead, along the hairline and in some cases on the side of the head. The placement of incisions will depend on the type of brow lift surgery performed. During the procedure, Dr. Tansavatdi will release the attachments of the brow to the underlying bone and lift the brow skin to a new position. The incisions are usually closed with sutures or staples, and Dr. Tansavatdi will apply a surgical dressing to the head. The procedure generally takes about one to two hours. Patients are free to go home the same day. A brow lift is also sometimes performed in conjunction with a facelift with Dr. Tansavatdi.
Recovering From Brow Lift (Forehead Lift) Surgery
Initial recovery from brow lift surgery may take one to two weeks. Surgical dressings during the first few days are common to prevent excess swelling. Bruising, swelling, slight headache/pressure, and nausea are common in the first week. You may experience temporary numbness in the forehead and scalp. Final recovery is achieved within four months. Postoperative instructions will be provided and you will know exactly what to expect during every step of your recovery.
